Brown Findlay lives in Cookham, Berkshire, United Kingdom, where her mother is a teacher's assistant and her father is a financial adviser. She stated to Vanity Fair in 2012, about how she spent her childhood in the small English village, that "I grew up there, as did my Mum. My Nan and Granddad are around the corner. It is a very familiar place and incredibly dear to my heart. It's sort of quiet, but wonderfully so".
